  • Calling out Conservatives at the Tea Party

    This past wave of tea-parties I was honored to give the keynote speech to over 2,500 people at a tea-party in Winston Salem, NC.  My speech, however, was distinctly different than others given that day; in fact, I made it a point to call out the injustices of the GOP in recent years. The best …

  • One year ago today, Ron Paul’s 1st YAL event!

    What a year it has been since Ron Paul made his first-ever YAL appearance, at Wake Forest. So much has changed, has it not?

    In case you hadn’t heard, the WFU chapter of YAL (the first YAL group responsible for hosting Ron Paul) just carried out, on October 24th, the 2009 Southern Students For Liberty Conference.

  • The fight goes on at Wake Forest

    My “Rethinking the State” column in last week’s newspaper here at Wake Forest University deals with the libertarian view on poverty, as many criticize the philosophy as being completely insensitive to the needs of the poor.

  • Stop talking and start taking over your campus!

    As you will see per the pictures below, the first article was not written by a YAL member. In fact, it was written in direct retaliation against the YAL group at Wake Forest University! The funny thing is, is that the article is amazing! “How so?” You ask… It means Wake Forest YAL is doing …
